Yearning to Become Free!

April 19, 2022

Vahiguru ji ka Khalsa, Vahiguru ji ki Fatih!

In a fragmented war-driven world, fear grips our minds. Fear of the other, fear of loss, fear of where we will end up. Negative thoughts, negative thinking, and negative perspectives enter our minds.

Guru Teghbahadar Sahib in Rag Ramkali says, O mind! Take refuge in the 1-Light’s Nam (Identification), through the remembrance of which negative thinking may be destroyed, and you may become free.

Why is this negative and fearful thinking to be destroyed?
Because it is the pattern under which we operate, the perspective with which we see the world, the way we think, and ultimately, the motivation behind our behaviors.

How can we become free?
Through Remembrance. When we are in Remembrance, the mind understands that the only refuge is 1-Light’s Nam. As this Remembrance intensifies, negativity scatters, and we can become free. This freedom is long-lasting. This freedom is Grace.

If we can see this Grace at the expansive level, in the various names and manifestations of IkOankar, 1Force, we have received the gift of fearlessness. Once we have this awareness, our lifestyle changes, focusing on the 1-Light.

Will we take refuge in the 1-Light’s Nam?
Will we receive the gift of fearlessness and become free?

May we yearn to become free.
May the Wisdom-Guru guide us!
